Lakes, rivers, and coastlines define Canada and whether you are a fisherman or a kayaker, you probably value these features. Unfortunately, water bodies are becoming increasingly stressed through severe storms and human activity. Clean Foundation actively addresses these concerns through our restoration programs.
Clean’s watershed restoration projects have helped streams return to a more natural state, creating habitat desired by native species such as salmon and brook trout. In addition, our tree planting activities help foster healthy watersheds and provide opportunities for public participation in restoration activities.
Our Atlantic Reef Ball program addresses degradation of marine habitat along our coasts by installing artificial reefs that create high quality habitat for marine fish and invertebrates.
The Northumberland Strait Coastal Restoration Project is an initiative to restore 15 hectares of salt marsh habitat that has been impacted by humans along the North Shore. The five-year project will involve identifying, restoring and monitoring salt marsh habitat that will build the capacity to help local communities become stewards of the areas in which they live.
Consider collaborating with Clean on your next restoration project.
- Around 400 reef balls have been deployed in Halifax Harbour
